"The stay overall was pleasant. The owners are nice. We had to send a check because they can't accept credit cards due to a glitch on the site. All turned out well but I was concerned at first. The contract charged daily maid cleaning but it was cleaned every other.
When we checked in, the resort wanted to take my credit card which I refused. Then we were sent to another desk for a welcome packet which ended up being a pitch for timeshare. Niki was appalled when I emailed her. The bellman that it was only recently that they pitched their timeshares for the adjacent properties.
Overall it is a very nice resort and the condo is spacious and comfortable although I found out that the condo is actually furnished by the resort and not the owners. This becomes an issue because they don't really know the condition of the condo. The fuse box went out just as we were going to sleep but since the A/C was on, we just took care of it ourselves in the morning. The wifi wasn't working and we finally got that resolved. There is a loud sound of rushing water in the master bedroom in the morning from the bathroom upstairs waking us in the morning.
The beds are comfortable but the sofa is beginning to sag. The kitchen has the basic appliances and pots but unlike a real "home away" situation where the prior guest leaves extra coffee filters, salt, etc, to hold you over until you make it to the market. They do provide plenty of towels and toiletries.
My husband got sick and I called my travel insurance company and AMEX collect. The insurance company called the resort for a recommendation for a doctor. There was one on staff. The doctor took my husband to their clinic. Thousands of dollars later (4 to be exact), he was finally released from a course of IV's for hydration and antibiotics. There is an american hospital just 10 minutes away that accepts health insurance. When we left Friday, I was waiting outside for our driver, a resort employee mentioned I didn't have a credit card on file to pay for all the calls I made. I explained the concept of a collect call in Spanish and he said he was going to check inside and never returned. It was all very suspicious.
I recommend dining at Maria Jiminez and Hacienda Cocina and Cantina. We also did a day trip to Todos Santos. We bought boogie boards for our boys and filled prescriptions from the clinic at Costco."

"This was our first time using Home Away booking and love it! The studio was wonderful with GREAT view of Marina. We will definately book our next stay here. Booking and confirmation very quick and easy with Jim & Freda Wilson. Close to everything you would want to do, from walking along boardwalk, booking fishing or excursions, downtown shopping and great restaurants!! Don't hesitate to book here if you want good location and view!!"

"We had a great stay at Villa Gran Vista form June 4 to 11th. Through all phases of the reservation to the on site staff was excellent and very professional. I've stayed in several other homes in Pedregal but found the personal touch here far exceeded all the others. The house was awesome with a great view, swimming pool, bbq and everything you would need in kitchen. All rooms had a view and king size beds. We will be back!!!!"
